Letter of Transmittal 



Virginia State Library, January 10, 1911. 
7 he Library Board of the Virginia State Library. 
Gentlemeis : 

Some years ago Mr. J. H. Whitty, of Richmond, made a copy of the 
copyright entries registered in the office of the clerlt of the United States 
District Court at Richmond, 1790-1844. These original entries were then in 
the possession of Judge Robert W. Hughes. Mr. Whitty has generously pre- 
sented his copy to the Virginia State Library. I herewith transmit the list 
of titles as submitted by him. With the exception of a few corrections of 
evident mistakes in copying, the titles have been allowed to stand exactly 
as he copied them, in spelling, punctuation and capitalization. Undoubt- 
edly, some errors have crept in in the copy made by Mr. Whitty, and the 
absence of the original records has made it impossible to correct them. 

The publication of the entries will prove of very great interest to all stu- 
dents of Virginia bibliography. 

Very respectfully, 

H. R. McILWAlNE, 

State Librarian.

Introduction 



The following titles entered for copyright in the State of Virginia cover 
the period from the year 1790 to 1844. The Continental Congress framed a 
resolution May 2, 1783, recommending to the several States a copyright law. 
This was favorably acted upon by Virginia in October, 1785. No records 
have been discovered of State copyright entries in Virginia. Copyright en- 
tries were first registered in the United States District Court of Virginia by 
William Marshall, clerk, a brother of Chief Justice John Marshall. They 
continued to be registered in that office until the year 1870, when Congress 
transferred the matter to the Librarian of Congress. 

It has always been supposed that the early record books of copyright reg- 
istration for Virginia, prior to 1837, were destroyed by fire at the evacua- 
tion of Richmond. My belief is that there were no record books, but that 
the loose title pages of which I speak later, some of which were endorsed 
with the names of proprietors, constituted the only record of the period. 
The record books of a later period in the Library of Congress are rather 
meager and comprise, according to a recent statement of the register of 
copyrights, the following: "A large blank record book containing a few 
registrations upon the first pages, the earliest of which is dated 1837, fol- 
lowed by a registration of 1851 and some scattering registrations up to 
April, 1870. A second record book containing some registrations begin- 
ning on the 9th day of May, 1867, and running to the 22d of June, 1870. A 
third small volume containing a few registrations on the first' thirty-two 
pages running from the 9th day of May, 1867, to the 22d day of June, 1870, 
seeming to be a duplicate of the second book." 

The late Judge Robert W. Hughes had in his possession a record of copy- 
right entries, consisting of loose title pages, dating from 1790 to the year 
1844. He allowed me to make an exact copy many years ago, which I now 
place for publication with the State Library of Virginia. This record gives 
the exact title page descriptions, with most of the dates of entry and names 
of authors and proprietors. Prior to a disastrous fire which destroyed a 
portion of my library some years ago, I had one of the largest collections of 
Virginia books extant. The study of Virginia titles has always been a 
pleasant pastime with me. Many of the titles in this record have never 
been met with by me elsewhere. The record is invaluable to Virginia bib- 
liography, especially the "Henkel" German entries, one of which is, I be- 
lieve, the title of the first catechism printed in Virginia in both the German 
and English languages. The 1816 entry indicates that this was the fourth 
edition, enlarged and improved. 

The record reveals a writing of Samuel Kercheval, the title of which has 
not been definitely known before, I believe, and to which reference is made 



REPORT OF THE STATE LIBRARIAN 

by Jefferson in a letter to Kercheval of July 12, 1816; also a title page of a 
Richmond directory earlier than that of Maddox in 1819. Some early Vir- 
ginia books were not entered for registration and others may have escaped 
registry through the early methods employed by the clerks of the courts. 
This record may be regarded as a useful presentation of some of the im- 
portant publishing activities of Virginia for the years 1790 to 1844.
